OKC rallies to 8-5 win over Iowa

Daniel Corcino gets win and hits homer to start comeback

MLB: Spring Training-Los Angeles Dodgers at Oakland Athletics Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Only Oklahoma City won as the other three teams came back from their off-day and lost on Monday.

Player of the day

Oklahoma City pitcher Daniel Corcino hit a two-run homer and was part of the go-ahead rally in the bottom of the fourth.

Triple-A Oklahoma City

The Dodgers saw the Cubs take an early four-run lead but were then able to rally and go on to win 8-5. Three Dodgers, Daniel Corcino, Matt Beaty and Kyle Garlick homered to pace the victory.

Corcino got the win after pitching five innings and giving up four runs (two unearned). Trailing 4-0, Corcino hit a two-run homer in the second to get the Dodgers on the scoreboard.

In the fourth inning, with one out and runners on first and second, the Cubs misplayed Corcino’s sacrifice bunt attempt. One run scored and Corcino was safe on second on the error. A walk and a groundout produced the second run of the inning.

With two out and runners on second and third, Will Smith singled home two more runs to give the Dodgers the lead.

Jaime Schultz pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his first save.

Double-A Tulsa

The Drillers were shutout 4-0 by the RockHounds (Athletics) on Monday evening. Dustin May gave up two runs (one earned) in five innings pitched. He took his first loss of the season.

May also gave up three hits and walked two.

Cristian Santana had two of the four hits collected by the Drillers.

Single-A Rancho Cucamonga

The Quakes lost 5-1 to the 66ers (Angels) in a game where all the runs were scored in the second inning. After taking a one-run lead in the top of the second inning, the 66ers took the lead on a bases-loaded single from Luis Rivas.

Then with two out and the bases-loaded again, Torji Hunter Jr. tripled in all three runs to give the 66ers the 5-1 lead.

Bryan Warzek took the loss, he was responsible for all five runs in his 1⅔ innings pitched.

Donovan Casey singled in the third inning to extend his hitting streak to 14 games.

In a continuing pattern, the Quqkes were struck out 13 times versus collecting one walk in this game.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons opened their series against the Whitecaps (Tigers) with a 5-1 defeat. After a scoreless four innings, the Whitecaps scored three runs in the fifth and then two more in the sixth.

That was more than enough as the Loons could not capitalize on receiving seven walks. They went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

Andre Jackson started for the Loons and pitched four scoreless innings. Jose Martinez followed and he was responsible for all five runs scored by the Whitecaps.

Jacob Amaya and Dillon Paulson each had two hits for the Loons.
